change much???

Got sick of poor efficiency on my SP1 so I adjusted the dwell (its a gen 1 SP1 without modes...we arent allowed to have them here in Australia anyway!)
So my dwell was 50 on HPA setting, dropped to 40 but that resulted in lower velocity (by about 100 fps) now its set at 43 and it seems to fire just like it did on 50.
My question is....as I wont have the chance to try it for a while... will this make much appreciable difference to the efficiency?
I know it will have some effect...but will it be tiny...like and extra 50 shots per tank...or will it be like an extra 200?
I know every gun is different... Im asking for a generalisation here.
Thanks for your time....

If you want better efficiency, try a QEV and a lighter bolt. Lowering the dwell minimizes the time your valve stays open, resulting in a weaker shot. If you lower your dwell and raise your velocity, essentially, you will achieve nothing, since one offsets the other.

My L7 bolted.. BH boarded SP1 can shoot pretty darn close to a case from a 88cu 4500 tank. My dwell is on 14 ms.. Does that help? I think you should be able to improve yours dramatically.
